John Vachon Family and education Vachon's daughter, Christine Vachon, is a noted independent film producer. Later years John Vachon's first job at the Farm Security Administration carried the title "assistant messenger." By 1937 Vachon had looked enough to want to make photographs himself, and with advice from Ben Shahn he tried out a Leica in and around Washington. The hallmark of this style of photography is the portrayal of people and places encountered on the street, unembellished by the beautifying contrivances used by calendar and public relations photographers. He died in 1975 in New York at age 60. Samples of photography Notes External links Vachon, John.
